The holidays are a time for family, for warmth, for snuggling together over hot chocolate and showering each other with love. Except when they’re not; close proximity to family can also mean a lot of biting your tongue and reminding yourself that Grandma hates it when you cuss.
It’s not that we think you should spend your entire holiday season hiding from your family, but even the closest of kin need a little break now and then. Here’s how the Sidequest crew gets our game on to cool off during the most wonderful time of the year.
